Questions and Answers
How can we save money hiring you?
Look around for Djs in advance. Don't wait last second to look for a Dj because a smart Dj can spot someone who is desperate and will try to rip you off. Plus providing your own speakers and lights will cut down the cost of most Djs.
How many projects do you average in a year?
I would say about 50 a year. I want to bump up that number greatly though. I feel I have a lot to offer to a waiting crowd.
What we may not know about you?
I love working with kids. I am a camp counselor on the side and my first few gigs were at my local YMCA doing middle school dances. Meaning I have an arsenal of clean music.
What is important to know about your profession?
I wish customers knew the type of pressure that are on Djs.The pressure is fun most of the time but some things are out of our hands. If something electrical goes wrong we get booed. We are there to make sure everyone has a great time and the last thing we want is a silent room.
What kind of questions do customers ask you?
Do you take requests? Yes I do. Can you stay an extra hour? Yea I can but that is an extra $50 to the agreed total.
I started producing music on my laptop three years ago. Eventually I wanted to make it big so the following year I bought my Traktor S4 and started by doing small time local events.
What do you recommend to know before hiring you?
There are three things that you must have ready if you want to book at Dj. One have the money you wish to spend and maybe a little more just in case. Two have a venue that you will 100% have for you date of the event. Three make sure you have a definitive date. As a Dj I would not want to work for someone who isn't prepared.
What types of jobs are the most common?
Weddings are pretty common. Everyone is getting married and everyone looks to Craigslist to find that entertainment.
What questions should a customer ask before hiring you?
What are your rates? Do you have a website? How long have you done this? How large is your music library? Do you take requests?
Do you offer any service after finishing the work?
I provide clean up in my area so it is cleaner than when I showed up. Also I have no problem socializing with the other people that are there.
